Was Dr Kelly - Vince Fostered?

This time all those conspiracy nuts started their swim from the other side of the pond. We all know that the English are surely above intrigue and sinister deeds, just ask Roberto Calvi, you know “God’s Banker”, as he hung from Blackfriars Bridge. All those suspect and secret financial dealings with the Vatican had the Holy See distance themselves from the ‘suicide’ back in 1987.  That collapse of Banco Ambrosiano and subsequent fraudulent-bankruptcy surely couldn’t involve American Archbishop Paul Marcinkus, then president of the Institute for Religious Works (IOR), the official name of the Vatican bank. Amazing that the official story of Calvi’s death was finally rejected as the real cause of his fate.

Campaign Reform

At the outset, let us all be realistic and admit that very few politicians seek serious Campaign Finance Reform. The incumbents have such a distinct advantage to an unknown challenger that those in power have every incentive to maintain the current system. So what is all this commotion about a 'so called' reform? Well, as most efforts for renovation, the design of the fundamental foundation is ignored and the facade is only altered.

The 21st Century Decade Retrospective

Two earth-shattering catastrophes shaped the last ten years. The first 911, the staged terror event that provided the self-justification to wage an endless war against phantom enemies and the second a financial meltdown of the debt ridden international banking system. This has been a frightful decade for America.

Tariffs For Survival Or Profits For Multinationals

The deadline approaches for President Bush to accept or reject the recommendations from the International Trade Commission on protective Tariffs for the U.S. steel industry.The dire condition of a crucial domestic industry is beyond dispute. The core question - "We need to go to the root cause of the problem," the official said, pointing to the need to get foreign governments out of the business.

Playing the Lyre of Budget Madness as the Empire Burns

By Washington DC standards the just concluded budget agreement for funding the federal government through September, is a big win for Republicans. Emily Miller in Human Events describes, "The final agreement will be for $38.5 billion in cuts from current spending over the remaining six months of the current fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30. The spending cuts, although historic in size, account for only 2.5% of this year's projected budget deficit of $1.6 trillion." Here lies the obscenity of the central government; namely, that a mere drop in the bucket reduction in a historic deficit is lauded as the great achievement of compromised negotiations.

The Rule of Gold after the Financial Collapse

In a secular world, the operative "Golden Rule" is "He Who Has the Gold Makes the Rules". The condition of the global financial banking system is untenable. The aggregate amount of debt worldwide is anyone’s guess. The introduction of derivatives and counter claims pushes the chain of obligations into the unknown. All that is left is for central banks to create mountains of uninterrupted counterfeit money to roll over and delay the inevitable. The IMF chart of World Currency Reserve is a skyrocket line to oblivion. It does not reflect a healthy stockpile of treasure, but certainly manifests a new debt machine running to infinity. The Bullion Vault explains this reality in the following manner.

Hate Laws Intended to Silence Truth

In a relativism culture of social permissiveness, the non-judgmental attitude, held out as the suitable standard for conduct, has become the politically correct behavior. One might think that anything goes under this mindset. However, the exact opposite practice and enforcement, under the most rigid conditions, is championed as necessary for enlighten and tolerant liberalists. The proliferation of demands that hate speech is the new capital crime, actually is counter iterative in building a civil society. This orthodoxy of the fanatical, proudly presents this illuminated and required deportment, as obligatory for all citizens.

Road to Serfdom, Yesterday and Today

The path to a Global Gulag is paved with failed promises and stern submission. The functions of governments change little over time. Only the intensity of applying current techniques of crowd control evolves for making the task easier to corral the rowdy into prisons of their minds. Force works because people allow themselves to be intimidated and government stooges are willing to rejoice in the celebration of human misery. The police state stems from an entitlement of State tyranny, which justifies its existence based upon an absolutism of authority.

Newt Gingrich the Skunk Vomit NeoCon

Don Imus yells the slur "Skunk Vomit" as a description for Newt Gingrich. Coming from the erratic "Old Cowboy" and shock jock legend that lives on outrage and offense is nothing new to his listeners. This successor to the Andy Rooney curmudgeon institution is hardly a clarion voice of time-honored conservatives. So too, with a little investigation into Newt Gingrich you will see that the former Speaker is no true conservative. His rhetoric at times can seem appealing, but strip away the high tone platitudes and you are left with the assertions of an opportunist and a New World Order proponent.

How the media covers Bilderberg meetings

The mainstream media blackout of the annual Bilderberg meeting is finally crumbling. Yet the prevarication machine continues to reinforce the delusional official line from on high. For decades, the sinister world cabal operated in the shadows of secrecy and disinformation. The timely analogy is the initial way the disgraced Anthony Weiner responded to his self-inflicted indiscretion. Ignore any rogue inquiry about the nature of their agenda or plots on forthcoming plans. High-handedness is the hallmark of their demeanor, just as arrogance is the basic character component of this pit-bull Congressional egomaniac.

Surplus

When government policy is based upon projections of future income from tax revenue, the consequences of reality will always disrupt the best of plans. With the downturn of the economy over that last several months, and the tragic events of 911, we have entered into a new dimension of fiscal retraction. Should anyone be surprised that promises of 'milk and honey' from politicians always come up short? The disease of excess expectations is non partisan. It consumes all parties and in most cases, afflicts every ideology. The reason is simple! Politicians need to appeal to the public for support.
